A little about us…
Freedom Church cares about one thing more then anything else, and that is awakening people to the transforming power of God’s love. Our people are diverse in age, background and culture. We have found miraculous transformation by God’s power and we simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom! Regardless of where you’re at on your spiritual journey, FC is a place for you to belong!
We believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God. Complete in full truth and accuracy, and without any contradictions. In it we find the expression of God’s love for mankind, His instructions for us to live a lifestyle that is holy and pleasing to Him, and the path to eternal life as God planned for us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, our Saviour – in His death, burial, and resurrection.
We believe that God is One (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10) and He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).
We believe in the Biblical plan of salvation, proclaimed by the Apostles on the Day of Pentecost—the birthday of the New Testament church. This includes faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:1-39; 10:40-48).
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11)
We believe in fulfilling the great commission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love (Matthew 28:19-20).
We believe in expressing our Christianity through a culture of passionate worship, love and respect, compassion, and inclusion of all nations in our churches, under One Saviour.
